Ron Put Posted April 24, 2021 Report Share Posted April 24, 2021 So, it's not my imagination :) I've been getting up during the night to urinate, with some frequency over the last couple of years. I am male and I am getting older, but my prostate is apparently perfect based on exams, my last PSA is 0.4 ng/ml. My urologist says I am functioning perfectly. I do restrict feeding to about 8 hours a day, starting at noon. I am generally hungrier at night and much less so in the morning, and my social (and to an extent, professional) life necessitates dinners rather than breakfasts. I eat quite a bit of fiber, averaging 253% of RDA over the last three months, so I drink water, especially in the evenings. And I am vegan and eat my vegetables. And as I've amped up the vegetable content, I've started getting up at night. Any other herbivores experiencing the same?Vegetarian Diet & Frequent UrinationFrequent urination can be a nuisance, but if you think your vegetarian diet is the cause, it may be worth the nuisance. A vegetarian diet excludes meat, poultry and fish. If you're eating a healthy and balanced vegetarian diet that is rich in complex carbs, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals, you may be at a lower risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. While there isn't a direct connection between regular visits to the bathroom to urinate and a vegetarian diet, some of your food choices may increase your fluid intake or act as a mild diuretic Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
